Amy Kuperinsky at NJ.com just put out a monster list of festivals in NJ. Here are some of the LBI area festivals we found on the list:
June 4-7 - Like your flicks by the Shore? The Lighthouse International Film Festival docks at Long Beach Island; lighthousefilmfestival.org
June 6 - ARRRRR. Get your tri-corner hats and eye patches in order. Tuckerton Seaport's Privateers and Pirates Festival is sailing in for a rollicking good time; tuckertonseaport.org
July 20/21 - Does Dad like a little shrimp with his brew? The Baymen's Seafood & Music Festival at Tuckerton Seaport stars shellfish and craft beer; tuckertonseaport.org
We'd also add the Hop Sauce Fest on 5/30 and there are food truck events at the Manahawkin Flea Market. And ChowderFest!
